Superhero PJs On

It’s official, the SEC is going to come down to a three-team race. Tennessee, LSU, and Kentucky. It seems as if the SEC is not as deep as we thought it would be. Or, beyond those three teams listed, the rest is beating up on each other. Because the second tier of Ole Miss, Mississippi State, and Auburn have fallen off substantially. This doesn’t mean that the SEC won’t get their fair share of teams into the tourney, it just means that the seeding of those teams will be significantly different than expected.

Historical Performance

The SEC entered the week with six teams in the AP Top 25. There are the expected teams in the top 10 (Tennessee and Kentucky) and then you have some teams overachieving. Like Ole Miss. But, that train might be coming to a stop. The Rebels have lost two of their last three following wins over ranked in opponents such as Auburn and a road win at Mississippi State. The Rebels are coming off a 21-point embarrassment against Alabama. And to keep it on the topic of unexpected teams, South Carolina just keeps winning. Frank Martin’s squad is tied for third in the SEC with Kentucky.
